Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.
You can find some information on spousal sponsorship from within Canada in our Settlement.Org How do I sponsor a spouse, common-law partner or dependent child from inside Canada? article.
In terms of arriving in Canada as a visitor, unfortunately, we cannot say definitively if they will grant him a Visitor Visa or not.
You can find some information on Visitor Visas in our Settlement.Org Do I need a visitor's visa to visit Canada? article.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
